This project aims to create a complete, one stop, learning resource for the overpass API.
It features a beginner-friendly, easy-to navigate documentation, as well as an interactive suite of tutorials to teach different aspects of the API.
We accept contributions/edits to the site! Feel free to do a pull request if you see an error in the docs/outdated material.
Translation to various languages is also an aspect we need contribution towards to.
A detailed contribution guide can be seen here
The project is/will be built using (mainly) the following dependencies/frameworks:
- Hugo - static site generator written in Go
- Gulp - task manager for preprocessing/asset pipeline
- ReactFlux - main framework for the tutorial engine
- Ace Editor/Code Mirror - for the online code editor
- Stylus - CSS meta language
- Install NodeJS, npm
- Install gulp:
npm install -g gulp
- Open http://localhost:1313/
Detailed Setup Instructions
If this is the first time you're working with the node ecosystem, install node first. This will add a binary named
npm in your path.
npm install on the root directory of this project, as well as
npm install -g gulp.
The theme/layout code can be found under the
themes/src directory. Gulp is a task manager that compiles these files to
themes/overpass_doc which is the flat html/css files used by the site.
gulp build needs to be run to compile the src theme. The default
gulp task, apart from building the layout and running hugo, includes a file watcher that automatically detects changes in the src and compiles it for you, you which is ideal if you are developing the theme/layout.
Note on i18n: Hugo does not natively support i18n/localization, and certain things have been worked around with to make it work. The site uses content sections to order the content by language (en/data, de/data etc.), and uses taxonomies to categorize the different content.
The project is deployed through the github pages service. The flat hugo files are pushed to the gh-pages branch.
deploy.sh script is included in the repo to push changes to gh-pages automatically.
The website's source is released under the MIT License.
The documentation and courses is released under GNU FDL.
